Tipping-off in a Week!
AAFA-STL will take on Beyond Housing in the Brackets for Good inaugural tourney! Round One is Friday, 2/26 - Friday, 3/4.  #TeamAAFA needs YOUR help to make sure our 170 players (clients) are equipped and ready to live a life without limits!  You wouldn't hit the court without the proper equipment, right?  For our players, that means rescue medication to keep them breathing easy and geared up for success!

$10 = 1 rescue Rx.  Help us reach our goal of $1,700 by visiting stlouis.bfg.org starting at 8pm on Friday, February 26!
Advocacy in Action
Missouri Senate Bill 677 has passed and is now being reviewed in the MO House of Reps!  This landmark bill establishes requirements for certain public entities to keep a stock of epinephrine auto-injectors (EpiPens) for emergency administration. Stay tuned for further updates!

Here, Joy & Reagan have a photo opp w/ Rep. Lacy Clay & his staff in D.C.  They also visited the office of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), an org. that has helped our efforts with keeping allergy & cold medicines accessible to law-abiding citizens.
